What I found out is don't blast the water in under full pressure because it creates a vacuum back pressure that would siphon out half the water I put in. Now it takes me about 15 minutes to fill my 65 gal. tank (w/water heater) at half pressure or less, or the time it takes me to have one beer, which we can stretch to almost a week.
When I first read that,,, I thought it said you could stretch one beer out for a week !!! LOL !!!
Still working on my 1st cup of Java !!!
I think it probably take me more than 15 minutes to fill our 30 gallon tank,,, Must be added VERY slowly !!! We can only just crack the faucet,,, like a strong trickle !!!
